2017 Outlook Update: “The End of the Sisyphean Economy?”

Q1 2017 Outlook

Segal Marco’s Q1 update to our 2017 Investment Outlook helps you put the optimism we are seeing in the markets in perspective by providing our near-term views on the world’s economies and the performance of specific asset classes.

Over the next 12 to 18 months, we expect:

  • Equity returns in developed markets to be positive and attractive
  • A general pattern of low rates with some modest upward pressure likely resulting in fixed-income returns below long-term expectations
  • The liquidity premium and active return enhancement on the more illiquid or so-called private asset classes to be still available in many areas, but investing should be highly selective at this point
